When we thank God in all circumstances, we learn to overcome them.

The supreme test of a swimmer's ability is the 100 metres freestyle. It is in this event that swimmers reach the highest speeds.

Whenever the 100 metres freestyle is spoken of, one name always stands out: that of JOHNNY WEISSMULLER. He was the first man in history to break the mythical one- minute barrier in this competition.

Contrary to what you might think, Johnny had many problems. In early childhood he was diagnosed with polio, and was nearly paralysed. The doctor told him, "You must start swimming as soon as possible if you want to get well".

Young Johnny spent much of his time in the swimming pool. He was able to turn this twist of fate to his greatest advantage through discipline and training.

Others might regret suffering such a terrible illness, but he took this opportunity to become one of the most famous athletes of all time.

There are two ways to hold a sword: by the handle, or by the blade. If fate tosses you a sword, don't complain or give in to fear; take it by the handle.

The Bible tells us that God does not allow evil to come upon us. We must learn to trust in Him and ask Him what attitude to take in each new situation.

Paul and Silas were thrown into jail. Instead of worrying and weeping, the Bible tells us that they prayed and sang praises to God.

Later, there was an earthquake and God brought them out of prison; but during their time there, many people came to know the Lord, and in a short time there was a church in that city.

What is going on in your life right now? Are you complaining about your situation? About God? About other people?

You have to learn that a complainer is no good to the world. History is made by those who turn difficult situations into opportunities.

When we thank God in all circumstances, we learn to overcome them.
